Corrosive gaffes galore
Corrosive gaffes galore
The ink had hardly dried on my last blog “ Epic in replay” detailing Sonia Gandhi’s musing while symbolically aiming the arrow bringing to an end of the mighty Ravana at Ramlila grounds during Dasserah and my lamentation of the fact that her knowledge of Ramayana ended with Ravana’s end and not beyond. Had she some ideas on how Rama ruled and how, as becoming of a just emperor, he banished Sita on a mere allegation of suspicion on her chastity, she might have raised at least a voice of protest, respecting Lord Ram’s sense of righteousness, against unbridled corruption under her dispensation. Perhaps it is too much to expect it from an alien, when even full blooded Indians themselves are out to cast abuses on our gods and religious leaders held by us in reverence. Such people might have existed before also in the country. Is not the destruction of the Indian way of life and culture due to such pernicious elements midst us? It is not the superior armed strength of foreign invaders of the past that made this country suffer slavery for centuries. It is our own denigration of our values that did us in. The story is not different today. Many such bad elements are having a free run in this country in the garb of leaders of various political parties.
We have the recent case of Gadkari (G) of BJP equating Swami Vivekananda with Dawood Ibrahim(DI) on the basis of their superior equal IQ. Only a devious and degraded brain can equate a person who lighted the moral fire in the youth of this country to help them grow and behave as men throughout life with one who is a scum of the society turning vigorous youth to impotent eunuchs incapable of thinking right and be ready to unleash terror on the orders of the mad and depraved. Mr G had a shameful explanation to offer. He said it was on the basis of IQ. I am ashamed that the country has accepted his explanation from the way this episode remains obliterated in the media. I have not found even a single letter to the letters to the editor of the few newspapers I read. How can one compare a superior IQ of Vivekananda resulting in production of an immortal and creative work with an inferior IQ resulting in no work but destruction. Can 100 and 0 anytime be equal? Mr. G, who cannot make any distinction between O and 100 can better compare himself with DI . Some of his own alleged financial irregularities seem to have a similar destructive complexion injurious to the welfare of the society.
There is another case of a mortal Ram desecrating the immortal one. In the former’s scale, the latter is a poor husband. How can Lord Ram disown his wife, that is his question. Unlike G, this mortal Ram has a superior IQ and can recognize frauds. I fully agree with him when he said in a TV interview, that Rahul, the Yuvraj of the country is illiterate. He seems to be in favor of Mr Modi as future PM. It makes me wonder how a brilliant lawyer with a superior IQ and who had saved quite a few crooks from certain life- long incarceration or from a choking end at the end of a noose.would be so foolish to hit the IQ level of a G or DI. His statement regarding Lord ram is nothing less than blasphemy and deserves a fitting chastisement. The man’s senility cannot extenuate this serious offense against the sentiments of Hindus.
Yesterday I heard Mr Digvijay Singh (D) making a comparison of the irritant Kejrival(K) with the inimitable Rakhi Sawant. According to him both uncover, but expose nothing. With regard to K I must say that he has uncovered enough and what he has exposed is ugliness at its nadir of Indian politicians, hypocrites all, who deserve to be hanged expeditiously for the good of the nation. It needs the possession of a high level of IQ to discern ugliness on its very sprouting. That D could not sense ugliness at its worst places him in the company of DI or G with moronic IQ. D seems to be deficient in IQ but also seems to suffer very poor eyesight. To say that Rakhi sawant when she uncovers exposes nothing is a sure proof of almost blind eyes. D must change his glasses for one with thick lenses to enjoy the bounties of her exposure for the sight of which millions of viewers with higher testosterone levels and 6/6 vision sit glued to the TV. Rakhi has plans she says to file an FIR against D for the malicious propagation of mal information casting aspersions on her publicly well acclaimed physical endowments. Hopefully Rakhi's plaint can set old D's eyes and brain in order.
